your missing clip may or not be causing the problem.
when I prime mine...I fill it up half way with tank water and turn it on untill water starts to flow into the housing. It will only fill up about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way....then You shut if off and you'll see a massive amount of air bubbles come flowing out of the intake(inside the tank)....this is the filter getting the air out of the filter..as the air is being released, it should then fill up with water to the brim and then you turn it back on and should be good to go!!!!
if that sounds too confusing...since you lost your directions, I took the libert of finding them online for you...
here's the "quick set up" phamplet that came with my 350, should be mostly the same:: http://www.marineland.com/sites/Mari...MagProQSUG.pdf
hopefully this'll help you out!!
PS - i see your a new member! welcome!!!
thanks! shortly after posting i found the manual online also, but it didnt say much about start up...what you said makes perfect sense! i also noticed what you were talking about each time i tried and turned it off...i just didnt want to do it too many times not knowing if it was procedure...i will be sure to follow your steps after work...thanks again! =)
